Yesterday, Secret Cinema announced a worldwide Secret Cultural Protest, #LoveRefugees, in solidarity with refugees. The series of screenings will take place simultaneously this Saturday 12th September at 7pm with the UK, France Japan, Kenya and Tunisia confirmed as the first host countries.

Leading the protests in London, Secret Cinema will stage a secret screening at a central location. This screening will be the first of many and marks the launch of a new initiative to install mobile cinemas across refugee camps in Europe, establishing a cultural dialogue and stimulus. The ‘jungle’ refugee camp in Calais will be the first to benefit, launching on the 12th September.

Worldwide, the screenings are held in support of a local charity.

Interested parties, artists and organisations can join the protest and/or host a screening in their city, wherever they are. To register their interest and for further information, they are asked to email secretprotest@secretcinema.org
